Project Ceannt Project Ceannt is a major development in the heart of Galway City and is implementing a consultation process. See below for an invitation from the project.
In Phase 1 of the Public Consultation process, we received over 500 engagements and 100’s of helpful suggestions from the Public, through our survey process on the Project Ceannt website. In addition, we have conducted over 2,000 interviews across Galway City and County which have provided us with critical information that will help make Project Ceannt a success.
I am delighted to tell you that we are now in a position to launch Phase 2 of the Project and to that end, we now invite you, and some of your members, to meet the Project Ceannt team and participate in the future Masterplanning of Project Ceannt.
The Northern and Western Regional Assembly has prepared a Draft Regional Spatial and Economic Strategy, following significant engagement and consultations over this previous 12 months. This includes the formal Pre-Draft RSES consultation that took place between November 2017 and February 2018. 124 written Submissions were received during that consultation process and were considered in the Directors Report to the Assembly Meeting in April, 2018. These consultations have helped shape the preparation of the Draft RSES.
The objective of the RSES is to support the implementation of the National Planning Framework – Ireland 2040 and the economic policies and objectives of the Government by providing a long-term planning and economic framework which shall be consistent with the NPF and the economic policies or objectives of the Government.
The Draft RSES has now been prepared, and it has been informed by an Environmental Report that has been prepared in accordance with the SEA Directive and the Planning and Development (Strategic Environmental Assessment) Regulations S.I. No. 436/2004 (as amended), accompanied by a Regional Flood Risk Appraisal Report. A Natura Impact Report (to inform the Appropriate Assessment) has also been prepared in accordance with Article 6 of the Habitats Directive.
Written submissions or observations with respect to the Draft Regional Spatial and Economic Strategy and the accompanying reports may be made between 19th November 2018 and 5pm on 8th February 2019 (both dates inclusive).
